The Power of Habit

The definition of habit:

 

"A settled or regular tendency or practice, especially one that is hard to give up". 

 

We all have habits. 

 

Some good, some bad. 

 

And its these habits that define where you're currently at, and where you want to go with your life's goals.

 

Habits are either good or bad. There’s no in between. They're either helpful and add value to your life or not. We want to do more of the good habits and less of the bad. 

 

Habits take at least 30 days to develop until they become automated and you perform tasks without having to consciously think about what you're doing. 

 

Lets take walking for example. If you are fit and healthy you should be able to walk without giving it too much thought. But for a toddler learning to walk, this is a very different story. Every step requires a great amount of thought and energy, but with repeated practice, this once difficult task, become easy and natural, and eventually automatic.  

 

The momentum to move forward towards your dreams, must be directed by your mind and habits.  

 

Without good habits, your goals and dreams will remain just that…DREAMS. 

 

The difference between those who are successful and those who fail, regardless of whether its to do with your fitness, career, relationship goals, or any area of your life, it's usually down to our daily habits and the choices we make. We all have choices. 

 

[IMPORTANT]

 

If you are not happy with where you are at currently, then chances are, you have more bad habits than good. 

 

 SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE! 

 

It's not easy to change old habits into new ones.

 

If it were easy, everyone would be walking around with their dream physique, doing their dream job, and with their dream partner. 

 

Life would be great! If only it were that easy. 

 

It takes practice, practice, and more practice.

 

We become what we repeatedly do. 

 

Are you ready to change?

 

How bad do you want it?

 

Real success can only come from within. 

 

TRY THIS:

 

List as many of your habits you can think of, good and bad.  

 

Separate them into two sections and write them down. 

 

Think in relation to lifestyle, diet, planning and organisation, time keeping, or anything else you can think of that may possibly play a role in whether you are successful or not in your mission to achieve results. 

 

Then make one small change every week. Lets call these changes 'WINS' 

 

The smaller the better because something small is easier to implement and commit to. 

 

The more WINS you can achieve each week the more successful you'll be.  

 

Good luck!
